He asserts that he will hit the ground running because he is acquainted with the presidency having been the first occupant of the current location.

“7th January 2017, I showed Akufo-Addo around the Flagstaff House, where he will sit, his vice president, cabinet office, his meeting and conference rooms, I am the one who showed him around.

“So, I was asking a question, on 7th January 2025, who will show John Mahama around the Flagstaff House?” he asked party faithful at the St. Martins Secondary School in Nsawam.

Mahama was there as party of his National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearership campaign which was in the region during the week.

“I opened Flagstaff House and I am the first president to have worked from there, it is true it was built by president Kufuor but I was the first president to stay at Flagstaff House.

“So, after my inauguration, I will drive straight to Flagstaff House and start work,” he said to cheers from the supporters.
